The work of Iran do Espírito Santo is rooted in conceptual art, Pop art and Brazilian Constructivism. In works such as the Fotogramas (photograms), produced in 2007 and 2008, the artist uses direct printing onto photographic paper to resume detailed studies in color and form that characterize the objectivity and rationalism of concrete art and its relationship with graphics design and mass communication.. And it is in this way (the elements of mass communication) that the work of Iran do Espírito Santo also crosses over into pop art and conceptual art by incorporating everyday objects into the art space.
Iran do Espírito Santo was a resident artist of the Tamarind Institute in Albuquerque, the United States. In 2007, he had a show in his honor organized by the Pinacoteca of the State of São Paulo, in collaboration with the Museo Nazionale delle Arti del XXI Secolo (MAXXI / Roma) and the Irish Museum of Modern Art (IMMA / Dublin). Iran is also an illustrator and graphics artist.
